Fuller’s has a history dating back to the 1600’s London in the Chiswich district down to the Thames river. A long history of brewery houses first coined the Fullers’s Griffin Brewery, as it is known today, in 1845 with the partnership of John Fuller, Henry Smith and John Turner.
I bought this 500 ml bottle at 8.5% in a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 13 Euro. This limited edition ale had number 141.
Thick and hazy beer with a orange and red glow to the color.
A small head with just a little rough and fine foam.
The aroma comes off as a dump truck full of sugar, combined with notes of fresh yoghurt and its delivered with a knotted fist.
Extremely full bodied and overly sweet. A very low CO2 level and a after taste that will hunt you into eternity.
Overall rating 78 / 100
